How to Make Vacation Planning Easy with Kids 

Do you love to travel?  We certainly do!  As our family grew from just two adults to a family of four things got a bit more complicated (and expensive!).  I want to share some GREAT ideas on how to make vacation planning easy with kids!  Is that really possible you ask?  I think so!  

The more we travel the easier it gets – there are two reasons I can think of 1) the kids get older each time and 2) they know what to expect.  Planning is also KEY!  We try to plan flights at times that won’t be as taxing for the kids and try to think of fun pit stops to break up a long road trip.  An amazing family vacation is waiting – take a look at the suggestions below and get ready to head out for some awesome family fun!
